My interest is in the children of John Ralph and Euterpa as these would all be related to me but I can give you a bit more information to add to what you have as thru Euterpa they would have a connection to you. Hope you find this useful.
John Ralph Johnson was the son of Cyrenius Johnson (b. 1812 I believe the Niagara area of Upper Canada, d. after 1881, somewhere in Ontario ?), and the 3rd wife to Cyrenius, Jane Ferguson (b. 29 Aug 1811, London District, Upper Canada, d. 13 Feb 1881, Aylmer, Malahide Twp., Elgin Co., Ontario, Canada). John Ralph's sister from this marriage, Mary Jane Johnson, was my gg-grandmother.
